Fab Free Family Fun

The three of us are always up for an adventure and we  recently stumbled across the idea of geocaching we just HAD to give it a go. What is Grocaching I hear you say? : Geocaching is a real-world, outdoor treasure hunting game using GPS-enabled devices. Participants navigate to a specific set of GPS coordinates and then attempt to find the geocache (container) hidden at that location. Sounds great doesnt it!

We downlaoded the app  from here, found a geo catch nearest to our house and got ready to set out to find it! 

Daddy Bear and Mommy Bear were very excited about at the prospect of a real life treasure hunt, we both loved them as kids! However...we weren't convinced Baby Bear would share our enthuaism....we needed to step this treasure hunt up a notch. 

Out comes good old reliable pintrest, where I found super ideas. I loved the kids treasure hunts ideas I found so I mixed and matched a few ideas and Ahoy there Maties to a super piriate loving treasure hunt. Similar one found here

Off to a near by woods we headed, armed with a checklist of items we needed to find,a telescope, a compass,  a sword, welliies, a crayon, the geo caching app and bucket loads of enthuasism!

Having found the geo cach quite easily we concenrtated on ticking off our treasure hunt requirements, after a great walk in the woods, lots of games and make believe we emerged with our treasure! The only thing left was to bury it!

Off to the beach to bury the treasure! A big hole was dug and in went the treasure (all bar two sticks), covered it back over and got the sticks and Baby Bear very proudly placed them as 'X' marks the spot!!

This was a super fun afternoon of adventure. I was so glad we had made it fun for all three of us. The geocaching app is great for adults and the pirate themed worked briliant for Baby Bear. And the best thing of all....it was completely FREE!! Heres to many more geocach pirate adventures.
